What is the average new car payment today?

Get a new Chevy for well-under the 2016 average new car payment.
Ron Westphal Chevrolet offers new Chevrolet models for well below the 2016 average new car payment.

Well, according to Experian the average car loan has a payment of $495 per month.  That’s $13 more than last year.  CNBC puts the average new car payment at $503.  And, that’s the first time the an average auto payment is over $500.  No matter how you slice it, the payment is around the $500 mark.  2016’s used car payments average about $362.

Do you need to pay $500 to get a great car?

The simple answer is “No.” Ron Westphal Chevrolet offers a complete line-up of vehicles that offer payments well below the $500 average.  Even if you have no money down!*  And, don’t worry.  You don’t have to drive a tin can anymore.  Nearly all our new models offer ice-cold air conditioning, power windows, locks and mirrors, tilt and telescoping steering wheel, MyLink Color touch screens with bluetooth and 4G LTE WIFI and many more standard features..

Is a GM Lease for you? 1 out of 3 say “Yes”

Is a GM Lease for you?

Did you know that nearly 30% of all vehicle sales are leases?

Is GM Leasing for you? Ron Westphal Chevrolet Aurora, IL
Is GM Leasing for you?

More people in the market for a new vehicle continued to gravitate toward a lease rather than a purchase, according to the credit bureau Experian’s auto financing report for the third quarter of 2016.

The report found that 29.49 percent of all new vehicles sold to drivers in the United States between July and September were leased. This share was up from 26.93 percent in the third quarter of 2015.

We’ve found at Ron Westphal Chevrolet that leasing has become more popular for a number of reasons.

1:  It’s Easy-Breezy.

In and out of our dealership in about 1 hour every 24 to 39 months.  Just turn in your current lease and select your next Chevrolet car, truck, van or suv.  Lease payments can often stay exactly the same as your current payment or in many cases…even decrease.

2:  Reap the Rewards.

GM consistently offers special Lease reductions for current lessees.  And, in most cases you can end your lease early with no penalty.*

3:  Always Drive a New Car.

Why not?  Enjoy lower maintenance costs and the dependability a newer vehicle offers.

4:  Equity Protection

What is Equity Protection you ask?  Well, it’s a known fact that you will never have negative equity, or be ‘upside-down’ at the end of your 24 -39 month lease.  This type of promise cannot be made with a traditional auto finance loan.  Many people are disappointed to find out their vehicle’s value at the end of 3 years is lower than their 60 month loan balance.  With a GM lease your obligation is over within 39 months or less and you are free to choose your next vehicle without having to roll-over any negative equity.**

*Typically, GM Lease Pull-Ahead is offered to all Chevy Lessees toward the end of their lease.  If you qualify for Lease Pull Ahead, GM will waive your last 3 to 4 payments.  You may also receive additional incentives to re-lease or purchase another GM vehicle.  Although Lease Pull-Ahead not guaranteed, it has been a consistent GM Lease Incentive program for many years.  Call our Customer Care Team at 630-898-9630 to find out more about GM’s Lease Pull Ahead.

**Providing you are within lease mileage limits and are turning in an un-damaged vehicle.

Bird Invasion in Oswego, IL

Bird Invasion in Oswego, IL

Hey, anyone else have plump black birds invade their neighborhood this morning? This was filmed in Lakeview Estates in Oswego, IL on the morning of the 27th of January 2017.

It was crazy! And, what kind of birds are they anyway?  There were thousands of bird.  They were kind of plump, black birds.  Not tiny birds either.  Not sparrow-sized.  I don’t normally see birds like this in our backyard like I do the other types of birds.

A friend of mine said she saw them too!  She saw them in her neighborhood several miles away.  They were flying is a huge swarm(s) just like you see on T.V. Haven’t seen them since. Weird.
